For a while I wouldnt throw away my calender/planners because I liked looking back to see what I had planned on a specific day, and all my little scribbles and notes throughout the year. I'm nostalgic I guess. Or a horder.
Currently listening to: "I feel it all" by Feist on my Amy Winehouse I Heart Radio station. Good stuff. I love when Janis Joplin comes on.
Currently Eating: Salad, with tomatoes, (I've become a tomato person in the last month. Came out of nowhere) chick peas, red peppers, croutons, avacado and ranch dressing. Cauliflower with sundried tomato and basil hummus. Applesauce/oatmeal/banana/dried cranberry cookies thanks to pinterest.
Tonights workout: Body pump at the YMCA, but not before actually running more than 5 minues on the treadmill. I need to do a good 7 miles or something. Purge some toxins. I should go to hot yoga soon. I feel bad because I've missed one 5 mile and one 7 mile run on my Runkeeper training program.
Since the last time I blogged- I ran outside last friday in 20 degree temps and my phone froze with 1 mile left of my 5 mile run. Still felt great, but was freezing the rest of the night and my hands even went numb after my shower. Must be my old age that's affecting my circulation.
Didn't do much else as far as workouts over the weekend- just a yoga podcast at home on sunday afternoon after I realized the YMCA closes at 6 (or was it 7?) sundays. Monday I went to my Body pump class and used a little less weight for the back track. My back has actually never been so sore from a workout. Odd how that worked. I think I was using too heavy of weight before and couldn't properly do the moves.
Current weight for Body Pump classes:
Large plate =5KG = 11 lbs
Medium plate =2.5KG = 5.5 lbs
Small plate =1KG = 2.2 lbs
Warm up: 2 L = 22 lbs
Squats: 2 L, 2 M, 2 S= 37.4 lbs (THAT'S IT?)
Chest: 2 L, 2 S= 26.4 lbs
Triceps: 2 M, 2 S= 15.4 lbs
Back: 2 L, 4 S= 30.8 lbs
Lunges: Depends on how beat my legs are from squats, usually 2 L = 22 lbs, still burrrns
Shoulders: Body weight for pushups, 2 M for side raises
Speaking of backs, Found this on FB, might be useful:
Made these last night after seeing it on a friends' instagram:
|Banana + PB dipped in melted dark chocolate, then frozen. Healthy or naughty?|
I wonder when I'm going to break down and buy this suit? The top itself is over $100. In my defense I've never spent more than $40 on a suit though, I think.
For whatever reason I thought this was relevant when I saved it to my phone:
How sweet are my mom's valentines?:
Bye for now
